A trio of young Borderers have been picked to represent the Scottish Show jumping Academies at the National Inter Academy Team Event.

Megan Morris, aged nine, Georgia Buchan, 11, and Shannon Purvis, 15, were all selected at a show in July at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre, following a series of training sessions with British show jumping coaches.

They will now travel to Weston Lawns equestrian centre in Warwickshire on August 20 and 21.

Georgia from Ancrum and Megan from Lauder are in the same team, jumping in the 80cm class, while Blainslie’s Shannon rides in the 90cm class.
